Wow... you can't make up stuff like this, people. I came across this article while surfing for more info on Eduard Ghil (Edawrd Hill, Edward Gil, Edward Khil, take your pick...) the much loved Russian Singer of fame here and elsewhere for his "Vocalize" of "I am very glad, because I’m finally going home" - and the subject of many parodies, including a couple I am responsible for (Star Trek parody, Lost Parody).
Anyway... looks like there is a backlash from the communists in Russia (excuse the translation, this is using Google):

Millions of hits, hundreds of enthusiastic response, dozens of imitators. World-famous Mr. Trololo unexpected popularity of "just flabbergasted".
"I am the grandson of Edward told me that the song is mostly popular in America. But he put it very funny. She says, especially many "clients" in America, "- said in an interview with Edward Gil" Russia 24 ".
Now fans are raising money for the organization of a world tour of the legendary singer. A guest book page of the official website of Edward Gil replete greetings from Canada, USA and Uruguay.
The Communists of St. Petersburg and Leningrad region were skeptical of such news. They believe that Washington wants to discredit the way the history of patriotic songs. They believe that "the decision of untwisting tabloid propaganda campaign to make the lyrical melody in the Soviet vulgar American hit was taken by order of Hillary Clinton."
"Fulfilling the will of the White House, mocking parody of the infamous Soviet song recorded Christoph Waltz, known to falsify the history of Anti-Fascist Resistance in Europe. The most terrible blow to the Soviet song for our country, for the dignity of Russians was not even a heinous perepevanie vocalises not glued to a balladeer of the Komsomolets labels Mr Trololo and unexpected reaction of the Gil "- reportedly the Communists.
According to them, rather than require compliance with copyright end mockery of a song about the Soviet-leader-drummer, returning home from a trip to the rotten West, Gil humbly thanked the show-business United States for organizing provocative campaign.

They called on the singer not to go to America and to protest against the mockery of his songs.
Wow... what the heck? Of course, all the fun people are having is just a plot by the dirty western capitalists to demonize soviet culture. Really? News flash for you commies: You are about 20 years too late to even talk about this sort of stuff.
